49ers’ draft hats are officially out

It’s a black hat, with a red bill, and an old school logo

It’s that time of year where we judge the official draft hat for the San Francisco 49ers. The style isn’t far off from the 2020 draft hats. Here’s a look at a gallery of available merchandise featuring the 49ers draft logo. If you like what you see, you can purchase here.

The all caps bold white lettering of “San Francisco” stands out, but I don’t think that’s in a good way. The red logo on the red tee? Hmm. I am a...

In today’s nuggets, you’ll read about expectations for DeMeco Ryans in his first year, why Ian Rapoport says don’t pencil in Mac Jones to the 49ers just yet, a story about Phillip Adams, Ohio State head coach Ryan Day on Justin Fields’ best fit, and an NFL Draft analyst making a case for Trey Lance.

49ers To Re-Sign Ronald Blair

The 49ers are set to re-sign defensive lineman Ronald Blair, according to Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area. The deal – pending the outcome of his physical — will give Blair a chance to return after botched ACL surgery.  Blair ruptured his ACL midway through the 2019 season, which should have given him enough time to return for 2020.

The 49ers are crazy to draft Mac Jones at No. 3 overall

Kyle Shanahan made it loud and clear that he believes there are three elite quarterback prospects in this year’s class. Mac Jones is a good prospect, let’s not get that twisted, but players selected in the top 3 are supposed to be perennial pro-bowl caliber players in the NFL.

That’s not Jones, not even close, at least not at this point in his career. We already know he’s not as physically gifted as the other contenders, but he’s not mentally either, despite public perception.

Trey Lance schedules his second pro day for April 19

If you want to feel old, North Dakota State QB Trey Lance was born after Tom Brady was drafted in 2000. Are we ruling out Lance to the 49ers prematurely? Every prominent media member says the team plans on keeping Jimmy Garoppolo for 2021.

If the team is only willing to part ways with Jimmy G for a first-rounder, that would mean they’re planning to keep their signal-caller, barring a team getting desperate. If that’s true, based on everything we’ve seen...

While the eyes of the Faithful remain hyper-focused on the quarterback, the 49ers will choose third overall; the reality is that San Francisco still has eight other picks to work with throughout the draft. With 20 days to go until the start of the proceedings, Michelle Magdziuk and I thought it was time to focus on who the team will take after the QB in round one.

Seven-round mock draft: The 49ers trade back into the first round for a pass rusher

In this mock draft, the Niners added speed. A lot of it.

We’ve been doing seven-round mock drafts every Friday, and we’ll keep that theme going today. The selection at No. 3 will get old. I’m not budging. In the draft, if you have a chance to get an elite player, you do it. Since the 49ers are in a position to grab one, and I’m acting as the de facto GM, it’ll be QB1b.

As always, we’ll be using PFF’s mock draft simulator.

If Shanahan has truly adapted his thinking, which is required to win a Super Bowl, Jones likely won’t be the No. 3 overall pick.

NFL Draft pundits are uncertain which position the pass-catcher play in the pros.

The San Francisco 49ers continue their preparations for the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft. General manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan are under the spotlight while anticipation builds for which quarterback the Niners will select third overall.

San Francisco has eight additional picks in the draft and will look to add some depth to the lineup that could...

What challenges will Nick Bosa face coming back from ACL injury?

The All-World pass-rusher posted a video on Instagram showing that he is on the road to recovery.

The San Francisco 49ers’ defense was missing a finisher for most of the 2020 season. Defensive lineman Nick Bosa tore his ACL early in the Week 2 win over the New York Jets and missed the final 16 games, leaving a major void in the defense.

Bosa has been putting in work to get back into the lineup and be ready for the opening game of the 2021 campaign. He...

Pending a physical, per Jennifer Lee Chan

NBC Sports’ Jennifer Lee Chan broke the news that the San Francisco 49ers are expected to re-sign edge rusher Ronald Blair, pending a physical.

Blair missed all of 2020 after suffering a setback in his ACL recovery after going down in the ninth game of the 2019 season. Blair has been a favorite of the coaching staff. I’d assume he’d sign for a one-year deal worth the veteran minimum.

With Blair, the 49ers...

The most closely guarded secret in the entire NFL right now is who the 49ers are going to select three weeks from now with the third overall draft pick. Despite a lot of speculation online, Kyle Shanahan is reportedly keeping the decision very close to the vest - even from others in the organization.

Toney is projected to go in the late first round

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported that the 49ers, among a couple of other teams, have a pre-draft meeting scheduled with Florida wide receiver Kadarius Toney. The former Gator is projected to go in the late first round.

It’s easy to understand why the 49ers would be interested in a jitterbug like Toney. You put the ball in his hands, and he makes something special happen:

Remember those Matthew Stafford to the 49ers odds? A day or two before Stafford was moved to the Rams for Jared Goff, Vegas had him as the overwhelming favorite to be the Niners’ next quarterback. At one point, Stafford got as high (low?) as -130.

That means you’re losing money. That’s how confident Vegas was that Stafford was headed to the Bay Area. Or, they knew people would fall for what the media was selling and take advantage of them. I fell for...
